The 1st Mobility Package proposed by the European Commission on 31 May 2017 has been substantially amended by both the Council and European Parliament. Key modifications introduced by the two institutions have not been covered by any impact assessments despite anticipated disproportionate negative effects on peripheral EU Member States as well as the EU’s economy as a whole.

The report “The impact of the 1st Mobility Package on European Road Freight Transport, with special focus on peripheral countries“ recently published by the Transport & Mobility Leuven takes stock of the measures proposed by the Council and Parliament that have not been subject to impact assessment but are of crucial concern in terms of social, economic and environmental impacts.
